Ben Edson - Floor Coach

Ben is an avid mountain athlete who enjoys whitewater kayaking and rafting, mountain biking and trail running.  As he flirted with elite status in both paddling and cycling, injury was a huge factor that always seemed one paddle or peddle stroke away.  In 2013 Ben came to CrossFit AVL in hopes of pushing himself to the next level as an athlete and solving his chronic injury issues.  Ben soon became immersed in the Stay Active Method and is passionate about educating others on its benefits.  

 

Ben has worked primarily in the outdoor industry and still enjoys guiding guests through the Grand Canyon of the Colorado River.  Ben loves to help people push their limits while providing guidance and structure around their process.

Amanda "Amy" Wallace Street - Floor Coach

Amy enjoys helping others and having fun. In 4th grade she did a science experiment where she placed seeds on blotting paper between 2 panes of glass. This was placed in a dish of water in the sun. Once the roots grew down, the panel was flipped upside down. The roots adjusted and grew back down, the leafy portion turned 180degrees, reaching for the sun. All life is adaptable and strives for proper form and function.

 

She is a mother of two, and she works as a prosthetist orthotist. She has worked in this field since 1998 and is pleased to say that she still enjoys it immensely. Paying close attention to posture, gait, joint mechanics, and alignment is something she can’t help but to do. Like the seeds, the human body has shown itself in countless cases in her career to be able to beautifully adjust to seek center, to find balance.

 

Her favorite thing to do is laugh, dance, enjoy time with friends and family, swapping good stories, and being still and present in the outdoors. 

 

After so many years helping babies become young folks (momming) and helping people regain and optimize their mobility (working) she understands how caretakers can often neglect to care for themselves. The overarching philosophy of the Stay Active Method resonates with Amy and has helped her return to strength, work on breath and listen to cues from her own body.  Being a strong and well balanced person allows you to help others more effectively.

 

She is excited to support the CrossFit AVL community. The human potential is endless, so the work together will never be done. She looks forward to working together to improve overall  strength, flexibility and balance of the mind, the body and the spirit.

What is the Stay Active Method?

Proprietary Tests and Protocols to Manage, Reduce, and Eliminate the symptoms of Chronic Injury and Illness

IMG_1685.JPG

How we developed it

We spent more than a decade working closely with clients deep in the symptoms of chronic injury and illness.  


Using a combination of concepts from mentors, thought leaders, and scientists from sport performance, rehabilitation, and neurology we performed clinical work in the trenches directly with those experiencing the limitations.


Through this we've developed a framework and system that helps people connect clearly with their body and guide it towards their peak physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual capacity.

IMG_1390_edited.jpg

How we use it

The Stay Active Method is a continual system of assessment and re-direction of your exercise to manage, reduce, and eliminate your injury illness symptoms.

 

We design exercises for you to complete while you learn to read the signals from your body to hold back, do more, or alter your technique to express your fullest current potential.

Then you read the symptoms in the hours, days, and weeks following your exercise to guide your lifestyle towards the fullest recovery from your physical effort.

We use the results of your exercise and recovery to choose and update your next exercise session to ensure you're creating a healthy and balanced fitness.
